YYC Employment Law Group | Employment Lawyers Calgary
Client Focused and Cost EffectiveI found YYC after first meeting with a downtown firm. The difference was night and day. Unlike the stuffy downtown lawyers, Steve and Erika immediately analyzed my situation and came up with a plan. I always felt supported throughout the process and thanks to them was able to come out with the outcome I was hoping.Thank you
Lee was able to work around my schedule for a phone consultation. I appreciated his honest feedback on my situation as well as his explaining the legal points of my case and how they would play out. I especially appreciated his honesty regarding the chances of success rather than trying to get me as a client regardless of the actual likelihood of success. Will definetly consult with them in the future regarding any confusing legal matters.
I would highly recommend YYC Employment. Stephen is very knowledgeable in the Law in regards to Employment issues. I was immediately put at ease when we met. Stephen only works for employees not employers which is very important when seeking legal advice. You definitely want these lawyers on your side as the experience and knowledge is second to none. I have every confidence we will reach a favorable outcome in my case, I know Stephen has my back which is something I cannot stress enough as it is important at a time like this. The reasonable rates this firm offers amazes me when the quality of service is worth so much more. If you have any employment issues please contact them you will not regret it. 😊
I consulted a number of lawyers for an employment issue. They were expensive and I didn’t feel they gave me the attention I deserved. Then I met Stephen Dugandzic. I knew in my first meeting I found a lawyer who was different. First off, he was more reasonably priced but noticeably different was his friendly, easy going nature which made me feel comfortable. He was also positive and encouraging which made me feel he had my back. After spending more time with him, his extensive knowledge of employment law, eloquence, and attention to detail became apparent which further made me feel confident about my issue. I’d recommend Stephen and Erika at YYC Lawyers to anyone who has concerns about finding an affordable employment lawyer who greatly cares about you.
My husband and I were in need of urgent legal advice. From the google reviews alone, YYC Employment Law Group seemed to me the most approachable of the lot, and despite the relative "youth" of the organization, we chose to consult with them over the other more stuffy and traditional firms (who also charge way more). We are very pleased to have made this choice. Lee did not make things more complicated than they were, he listened to the situation and helped us to come up with a plan and ultimately encouraged us to relax, which is important when you need a calm mind to overcome any challenge. We are very appreciative of his services and follow up support - he wanted to know how it went, and answered some straggling questions that we had, by email. For us, we wanted a competent, supportive lawyer with good people skills, and that is what we got. Thanks for your help!
I contacted a few law firms at first and Stephen was the first to reach out to me during a long weekend, and I am ever grateful he did. Stephen was able to meet with me in person for a consultation within days. My case was handled by Erika and I could not have asked for better representation. Erika exemplified professionalism and legal prowess from the very beginning. She always took the time to keep me up to date and walked me through everything at every step along the way; a phone call with Erika never felt rushed. This is what I appreciated most from working with Erika. The firm's ethos is what sets them apart in the field and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
I found this law firm online and called for appointment after I walked out from my office. Mr. Lee McMillan made an arraignment to meet with me at same day after office hour. He explained clearly what my options were and recommended the best route to proceed with. After meeting, Lee took a quick action to send a demand letter to my previous employer and kept me up to date on the progress of my case. Through the entire process he explained each step to me and fought for me every step of the way. He is extremely intelligent and efficient in his work and was able to solve my case quickly and in my favour. I would recommend Lee to anyone who needs a great lawyer on their side!

I immediately established a level of trust with Erika from YYC Employment Law Group. I quickly realized that Erika is an effective communicator with excellent knowledge and a high degree of professionalism, this allowed me to have full confidence in her handling of my case. She provided me fantastic, timely support throughout the process and understood the stresses and challenges of my situation. Her suggestions were always in my best interests and she was a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely recommend Erika as she made this difficult time more bearable. Thank you Erika & YYC Employment Law Group!
Originally I was unsure of how I wanted to handle my legal matter. Once I finally made the decision to seek legal advice, I did some research comparing other Law firms and YYC Employment Law Group was personally and financially the best Law firm to fit my needs. I sent an inquiry through the website, and within a few hours I received a message directly from Stephen himself. We were able to book an appointment within the week. However, unfortunately Stephen was called away for a few weeks for a work related matter. That did not deter my interest in having a consultation. When I met with Stephen just a few days ago, he calmed my nerves by getting to know me and connecting with me on a personal level and was able to jump right into my case. He told me everything I needed to know, and what the potential outcomes would be. He was patient, kind, respectful, and professional. I feel most confident with Stephen handling my case from here on out, and I truly believe this "Your workplace issue shouldn't prioritize your lawyer's bank account - it's all about you." I can't Thank Stephen enough for his compassion regarding my case and I would highly recommend YYC Employment Law Group to any employee seeking legal advice.Baillie
